Brown: Second special session in July or August

SALEM (AP) — Gov. Kate Brown on Saturday said she would call a second special legislative session this summer to fix a state budget wrecked by the economic fallout from the COVID-19 crisis and wants to use coronavirus relief funds to help support the Black community and working people.

Brown spoke after the Oregon Legislature wrapped up the first special session Friday after passing bills, most dealing with police accountability and the coronavirus pandemic.

At a news conference Brown said she would wait to call another special session to see if federal lawmakers approve assistance for local governments.

“States are struggling to balance their budgets because of the economic depression caused by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Brown, adding that she expected to call lawmakers back to Salem in late July or early August.
